This is a continuation from What is Energy Part 1. If you have selected this out of sequence, you may desire to read that post first.
What Is It About Energy?
‘Everything you see on earth is made from one original substance, out of which all things proceed… There is no limit to the supply of Formless Stuff, or Original Substance’. Wallace D. Wattles.
This is a quote taken from the book – The Science of Getting Rich. The names of things change over time, but not necessarily their meanings. Here Wallis is talking about something called Formless Stuff, elsewhere he calls it ‘Thinking Stuff’ and several other names throughout the book, which I will not take time to list. Today, in the West we call this same thing Energy.
From what I have studied this ‘stuff’ is known about in some cultures and thanks to them, information about it has been preserved from generation to generation. Now thanks to the availability of computers, smart phones, other devises and the internet anyone, anywhere as long as they have access to these tools can learn about this magnificent ‘stuff’ now called energy, also.
Some Knew About It…
In China they call it chi, (sounds like chee), the Japanese calls it ki, (sounds like key) and in Asia, the Hindu calls it prana, (life energy/force). They all knew it is essential to our soul and body and our physical life cannot be maintained without it. We were told about the essence of oxygen to our life but not this one.
This energy is always moving, it is coming into and going out of us at all times. Its measurement is 0 at the time of death. We need about 70% of it to create our realities by design. Yes it can be measured due to equipment that are available now to those in the medical and scientific fields.
Those with this knowledge know how to store excess of this energy in parts of the body. I think the largest storage area is the lower dantian, (dan te an) i.e. the lower 3 energy centres/centers area in the abdominal region, (the belly). Knowledgeable mediators and those in the martial arts are well versed in this acquisition of energy in their bodies. It promotes health, strength and mental acuity, (sharpness), to name but a few of its many and varied benefits. It is by means of this ENERGY that we create.
If you have ever wondered how Bruce Lee and many others could do those phenomenal feats with their bodies – think energy storage and release as necessary; and of course disciplined, continuous training. What made someone he hits literally fly across a room before landing? Energy released from the point of contact with his body!
Healing Using Energy
Some may have heard of healing arts like acupuncture where they use needles to unblock your energy and allow the natural flow of it to resume. Tapping of different kinds, here the fingers are used to do the same thing. By tapping on energy points at various parts of the body you shift negative energy, (pain, worry, fear, anger etc). You may also have heard of Reiki, yet another form of energy balancing and healing. Rei stands for universal, and ki, as I said above, stands for energy.
All of these practices and many others use the movement of energy to bring healing to the soul and body.
If you are interested in pursuing more inform -ation about any of these healing modalities, You Tube is a great place to look. Tapping, (the Emotional Freedom Technique), is probably the easiest of them all. With the use of 2 of your finger tips tapping on certain points on mainly your face, (energy points), in a matter of a few minutes you can relive some of your own physical and emotional pain. If you are able bodied, you do not need the help of anyone else to do it. It is pain free and it leaves you feeling relaxed.
Many of us do tapping without being aware that’s what we are doing. Think of the many times we felt pain and discomfort in a limb, a joint, or any other place in the body. Almost without thought we instinctively reach for and ‘pat’ that area with our fingers or palms for a few seconds. We don’t know why we do it, yet we know it brings some relief, even for a short while. Now think energy!
Even simple acts like smiling, laughing, deep breathing and stretching have positive effects on the energy in our body. You know how good it feels when we wake up in the mornings and get out of bed, (or even before) to have a good, long stretch, we are shifting our own energy un -knowingly.
It is with this same energy we create financial abundance and we do so by engaging the things that we love and feel passionate about. We do this by giving to and serving others; and as a result, we are given to. To implement any change however, we start with the mind. We release our limiting beliefs about money and reprogram ourselves for abundance. It is all energy and we can change it.
Now that we are understanding more about energy, we can begin to open up to some of what we have been closed to due to our lack of awareness and knowledge. Energy affects every area of our lives.
‘My people are destroyed because they lack knowledge’. Hosea
Our ignorance has been our downfall in life. As we become more aware this changes.
